I wanted to wait until I rode about 275 miles and needless to say not very happy in the end. First off they arrived in a timely manner but instead of a true white , it came in pearl white ... I didn't want to send them back because I had no other tire to use. In the beginning both tires looked great on my Masi and rode really well but after one season of light riding the tires ripped on me and I had to buy new ones , If you want something to last the full recommended 700 miles of a tire I wouldn't recommend these. Not happy at all with the product.

These tires work well for me. I usually ride the tires for about 2500-3000 miles before retiring them to my old backup bike where I continue to get use out of them. Good value.
As an update to my September review, let me just say that these tires appear to be bombproof. All year long with my urban commute I have tended to get flats every few weeks, but so far I have not had a single flat with these, and I've even had to weave through glass that I figured there'd be no way I'd miss. (I hope I haven't jinxed myself.) They are a touch slower than my old tires, but they seem to grip better so it's worth it for the dark, wet, winter commute.
My dear wife needed new tires for an entry level Danskin triathlon. The yellow looks good and matches the graphics on bike. That's all she cared about. Me, I thought they were a bit heavy, but nice construction, mounted easily and in my test ride rode nicely. Good tire for the price. Will see how well they wear, but my wife does not put on much mileage once the rain starts falling here in the Pacific Northwest
I got these to replace my racers with once the weather starts to get worse with the winter. As such, I haven't tried them yet, but they look as good as the pics and reviews I read led me to believe. If possible, I'll do an update once there are some miles on them.
Knock-knock-knock. That was me, knuckles on wood. I needed to to that before saying this I commute about 150-200 miles per week, right through a minefield of thorns, glass, and various other entities hostile to road tires where I live (Central California)...without a single flat since I started using them in early August. Seem to be wearing well, too. Durable, good handling, resistant to punctures, reasonably priced, come in colors...get 'em.
These are great tires to ride on which makes them good for training. However, be careful about the pressure you put in them because the bead tends to come off the rim just a little bit with a high pressure and makes them prone to blow outs. I wanted to ride on them for a while before I reviewed them and considering the mileage I have put on them already they have done well.
Second ride I went on I ran over a huge piece of plastic on the road and pushed the tire all the way into the spoke. It punctured the tire but it has held up since then.
I replaced my stock tires off a specialized Roubaix with the Veredestein brand tire and found the ride and quality of the tires a huge plus. highly recomend them. Also very pleased with the easy use of this web site, the price and the customer service was great as well. Will shop here often. Kudos
I bought this tire because I wanted the red stripe for my red road bike. I not only achieved my objective, but found the tires road more comfortable, obsorbing a lot of the minor road imperfections I normally encounter. However, the concern I have is that I may be trading off comfort for slightly increased friction.
I have been cycling about 5 years and have tried many tires , mostly high end , but with this current slow economy i decided to try a less expensive tire. I live in a metro area and there is a lot of glass, etc. on the roads.I have had less flats and longer life out of these tires and they are easy to mount and are very similar to more expensive tires . I am very pleased and will most likely to continue to use these tires.
i use this tire to climb mountains. it holds the extra tire pressure i need since i am 200lb. it corners very well and handles the pot holes on the descent.i am thinking about using it on my flatland bike since it is working so well. there is nothing at this time that i can say negative about the tire.
